I'm making these at the moment and they're turning out great! I'm using the batter to make 'fried eggs' for vegan breakfast sandwiches. Definitely more tasty than just slicing the tofu and cooking it as a patty. I used whole wheat flour and added a tbsp of nutritional yeast. Next time I'll try adding kala namak (black salt) to make them even more eggy. This is my new go-to recipe!

This is a really good recipe! I wondered if there was a vegan alternative to an omelet for quite a while, and yours seems to do quite a good job as-is. I think I may have skimped on the milk (I used almond milk 'cause that's what I have) and it came out tasty but gooey; it kind of refused to set even after about 15 minutes in the pan. I think the batter needs to be more like a crepe batter than a pancake batter... After reading the comments, I think I will try adding some nutritional yeast - it was a thought I had, but I wanted to try it as it was first. Thank you for the awesome recipe, and I will most definitely make this one again!

Made this for my family this morning. Love it! I changed the soy milk to unsweetened almond milk and changed the cornstarch to arrowroot powder. I used extra firm regular tofu (16oz.) and doubled the dry ingredients and the milk. I also added a heaping tablespoon of nutritional yeast and some garlic and onion powder. It takes longer to cook than eggs but it is definitely worth it! Oh, and I did not use the cayenne pepper.

I tried making this but it was somewhat mushy. This is my first time making any sort of vegan egg alternative. Taste was alright though. How do I make it closer to the consistency of an egg. I may have used too much milk. Suggestions anyone?

Very tasty!!! This is the best Vegan Omelet Recipe I have ever tried. I have made it for my non-vegan family member visitor. I used a touch of (black) pink salt but did not add Nutritional Yeast. They all liked it and accepted it as Omelet! Thank you for posting it.

Definitely needs nutritional yeast and a pinch of Himalayan salt.

This is the best vegetarian fake egg recipe that I have ever tried so far! I tried this recipe a few times... the best result was when I replaced the soy milk with organic 2% milk. I have always used black salt for salt (or Kala Namak - a pink salt sold at Indian stores)... They call it black salt but it is actually pink. I also shaped it in to small circles (like mini burgers and fried them in heated sunflower oil). Thank you very much.

Delicious! I added nutritional yeast to the batter which made it perfect tasting! It did stick but next time I''ll have to use a truly non-stick pan with oil.

I had high hopes for this omelette, but... it was just not very good. I prepared it exactly according to the recipe, and I am an experienced cook. Sadly, I would not make this again. :(

Excellent! I used a firm water packed tofu, filled with mushrooms, onions, peppers, topped with a cashew cheese!

I followed the recipe exactly except instead of 1 tbsp cornstarch I used 2 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour. This was my first time making any sort of omelet and it came out PERFECTLY. It had to cook for probably more around 15 minutes, but it slid off super easily and folded over no problem! It had a great taste and texture. Amazing and easy recipe :) PS. Forgot to mention, I used Mori-Nu Silken Lite Firm Tofu.

I live alone and I love this recipe. I also love it because it does NOT have 8 different ingredients that are impossible to find! It's simple and straight forward. Best one out there! You have to follow the instructions carefully. Cook it, cover and check and make sure the top is dry before you proceed :) - From Nellie Miami

A+ for flavor. It tasted surprisingly like eggs. C+ for texture. Our omelette broke apart and we ended up making a scramble. Overall... B+. We'll make it again sometime.

We just made this for the first time and were pretty impressed. I was surpassed by how much it tasted like eggs. It's very tender so you have to be very careful when you flip. Our first one crumbled apart. I wish the overall texture was a little bit firmer. Other than that... this is a great find. Thanks.
